SKU: RJ00274
£65.00Price

In the 18th and 19th century every house had a fireplace, and therefore a mantlepiece, and in the grander houses , several mantlepieces. These would be decorated with all manner of things from clocks, candlesticks, photograph frames and pottery and brass ornaments.

 

This is a large Staffordshire flat back figure, so called because it was designed for a mantlepiece,  the back of the figure not needing to be decorated. This would also keep the price down of manufacture thus making it accesible to the masses.

 

A large Staffordshire flat back figure depicting a Scottish couple, with the gentleman playing bagpipes.  

 

This also has a painted clock face, a popular thing in Staffordshire’s figures.

 

In general good condition with some paint loss.

 

Dimensions: 35cm x 22cm
